23 days to Christmas

2 Dec

Just a quick reminder to let you know that I will be at my final Festive event of 2010 this weekend at the Fineshade Wood Festive Fair.

Located in the beautiful Rockingham Forest, just outside the stunning town of Stamford, it will be a two day event of quality local crafters/makers, local food stalls, Christmas trees for sale, a few festive tipples, and of course the Fineshade Cafe for a warming cuppa.

Come long for some festive spirit and gift hunting – if you have signed up to the handmade pledge for Christmas, this is the perfect opportunity to find some quality handmade gifts, made by local makers/artisans.

Hope to see you there…

24 days to Christmas!

1 Dec

Well, December is here now, as well as the snow!

Handmade Pledge Badge from buyhandmade.org

With less than a month to go, you will no doubt be buying some last minute gifts too, and what better time of the year than to take the Handmade Pledge?

This year I am aiming to buy as many handmade presents as I can  (no-one’s perfect!) from independent designer/makers, for giving at Christmas time.

As part of this, I signed up today to the handmade pledge, and so have popped the badge proudly on the right.

If you want to take part, or find out more about the Handmade Pledge, take a look at their website.  (Original Minnie is not responsible for the content of external websites).
